Visit Parque Santander, a public park known for its daily parrot gatherings. The park offers a respite and place for a walk during the day or a picnic in the thick shade of the trees. Rest on a bench and admire the lush green trees, wooden walkways, and ponds dotted with water lilies. A favorite place for the locals to meet, the park boasts a soccer court, a small cafe, and vendors selling drinks and snacks. Locals know to arrive before sunset to watch thousands of colorful parakeets descend from the sky, making a cacophony of noise, to nest in the trees.

  • Just as dusk appears the park becomes a maelstrom of brightly coloured parrots. People tend to bring cans of beer and street food is available.  more »
  • As the parrots return from the jungle to roost between 5;30-6 pm, you will not be disappointed by the spectacle and the sound.  more »
  • Beautiful park & a great spectacle watching thousands of birds flying around in unison just before sunset. You can also watch this from the top of the church which provides a much better view but I think you pay to get up there. Definitely worth going just before 6pm (July)
  • It's a little dirty from all the small green parrots. They gather by the thousands in the evening between 5-6 pm. Worth going anyway
